One Army: Live
From Wednesday 13 January 2016, Majors Nick and Kerry Coke will host weekly live One Army discussion groups from their corps in Raynes Park (United Kingdom Territory with the Republic of Ireland). Kerry will be familiar to people familiar with the One Army videos, as she co-presents the series.
Using the ‘One Life’ theme from the series introduction, they will invite participation from those who engage with the material via this website and social media.
Worldwide participation is an integral part of the One Army concept. The Salvation Army’s internationalism is one of its main strengths, with mutual support and sharing consistently enriching its effectiveness. The DVDs present views and culturally-specific activities from many of the 127 countries in which the church and charity is at work. The sharing of comments by means of virtual meetings is intended to enhance this further.
Scriptwriter and producer Commissioner Robert Street explains: ‘One Army has been received eagerly in an enlightening diversity of locations and situations. It will be good if we can encourage more international links between people who share the same faith, or even none – as yet.’ He continues: ‘Essentially, One Army teaching is centred on Jesus – who he was, what he taught and what he says to us today. We look to him to see what the Army should be today. The teaching helps us make a personal response too.’
The virtual meetings begin on Wednesday 13 January 2016 at 7.30pm GMT, and are planned to run for about an hour. They will be held each Wednesday at the same time until 10 February. Further venues and times will be arranged according to how these first meetings develop.
